Summer Youth Program Registration

The Ogdensburg Parks and Recreation Department will begin accepting registration for its 2020 summer sports camps in June, 2020. Sign-ups are at the Dobisky Visitor's Center, 100 Riverside Avenue, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All youth must sign-up at the Dobisky Visitor's Center before they are allowed to participate in any Parks and Recreation Department sponsored sports camp. For more information contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 393-1980 or check out its Facebook page at "Ogdensburg City Recreation."

Cost for each camp is $25. The department does run a "Sports Special" so if a child wants to sign up for three sports camps (including swimming lessons), the cost would be $60, a savings of $15.
